NOTE: This event is for government schools only and is free to attend.
The aim of this program is to challenge high ability students in Years 7-10 in a fun, challenging, collaborative and competitive mathematics-based games day. This event will be delivered virtually. This will also improve student engagement and ultimately achievement in mathematics by providing access to student enrichment Mathematics Games Days which are not available to them in mainstream learning settings in metro, regional and rural areas.
Maths Games Days are a very effective vehicle for getting young people - particularly in the middle years of schooling - enthused about maths. Problem solving and mathematical games address the Victorian Curriculum proficiency strands. Teams of 4 students compete for a variety of prizes including individual prizes for creativity, contribution to group work, and lucky door prizes. Lateral thinking wins the day.
Students will complete virtually against other teams - schools will need to provide a space where students can work in teams of 4 and complete the online challenges. It is expected that students are still supervised by a teacher for virtual games days and that all students have access to a device with internet access.
Please email Mel Savic on email@example.com with the number of teams you wish to register (1 team = 4 students). Each event is capped and therefore email confirmation will determine if you can register the desired number of teams. Teams can be made up on Yr 7/8 or 9/10 students only. "
